ENGAGE: Youth Theology Initiative

In 2016, Lipscomb University's College of Bible and Ministry received a generous grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to create a summer theology institute designed specifically for high school students. Lipscomb’s College of Bible & Ministry used the grant to launch the ENGAGE: Youth Theology Initiative in July, 2017. This initiative seeks to encourage young people to explore theological traditions, ask questions about the moral dimensions of contemporary issues, and examine how their faith calls them to lives of service. The grant funding is for four years and is the first one Lipscomb has received from Lilly Endowment Inc.
